Welcome Back for 2008-2009!
Welcome to the web site of the Big Bear
Expedition of the YMCA Adventure Guides program for the 2008-2009
season. We are affiliated with the Southwest YMCA in
The YMCA program is for sons (K-4th Grade, 5th Grade optional) and their fathers. Our objective is to provide an environment within which sons and their fathers can spend meaningful time together and also have fun. For additional information about the program, please review our simple summary and this YMCA document. There is also a YMCA web site for this program.
The expedition is organized into circles that hold monthly meetings in the homes of their members. In addition, the expedition also sponsors monthly expedition events (such as campouts, rock climbing, and so on) that all members are invited to attend.
The Southwest YMCA has started a Trailblazers expedition. It is in effect a follow-on program for 5th to 7th grade boys and girls and their dads. However, the new Quicksilver Expedition does include some 4th graders, as well as some who were never in the Adventure Guides program. Click here for information about joining.
